A Sneak Peek at The Facade of The GEM Hotel Union Square

May 23, 2012 at 3:01 PM | by | Comments (0)

Yesterday, we reported that the GEM Hotel Union Square aka The Jade Hotel would be opening in late 2012. Now today, we've been blessed with some renderings of what the hotel's exterior will look like.

Brooklyn-based Atelier and Company, not Gene Kaufman, is apparently handling the architecture for the facade of the hotel and they've given a "cleaner, richer and more authentic approach" to the hotel's entrance.

You can scroll through renderings here or you can skip over to the company's Facebook page for updated photos (from yesterday) of the construction progress. Wheee!

Given how much we loved our stay way back when at the intimate GEM Hotel in Chelsea, which sports a similar authentic facade, we're getting mighty excited for the GEM Union Square. Or is it the Jade? Hopefully, they'll get a website going up soon so we can settle this once and for all.
